My pen-name is 'Lebensweg' or tree of life and the term says a bit about my philosophy. Since meeting my wife Tai, both she and I aspire to growing into poet trees in motion together, dancing with life and swimming like dolphins and often against the main stream. There is a moon theme in our love.
I spent decades in medicine and many years in psychology and lived in Germany, California, Wales and now reside in South Africa.
I am not a youngster any longer, but young enough and my career is currently that of an 'unemployed poet with a premature pension'.
I have five children of my own: Jana (24) Lisa (22) Finn(22) Johannes (22) and Moritz (21) and three 'stepchildren' age 12 to 18, quite eclectic so to speak.
I read, write, travel, exercise and garden and am a passionate critic of dogma of any kind...
